I sent an order in on Monday needing two HD chutes in time for LDRS and they arrived exactly as ordered Yesterday!
Can't say enough good things about Julie and her chutes!
Not to mention they are beautiful appearing chutes!

Greg, Yes they are, she will sew them up however you want color wise, I even had her do the shroud lines a certain way for my 8ft in my Archer. instead of the usual method of a loop off of each panel (A-B, B-C, C-d etc), I had her loop them on opposite sides (A-F, B-E, C-D etc), much easier to keep from tangling when prepping. a bit hard to explain in writing so heres a drawing:

I don't know why everyone doesn't make their chutes that way.
I used a multicolor chute for my L1 cert. with an Estes Argent.
I'll have to go back and check, but I think each had panel was a different color.
The grandkids loved it (as did all the adults).  Cool

Agreed! Maybe they just never thought of it?
I ordered my daughter's L2 recovery on Saturday night. 
I got shipping confirmation this afternoon. 
I can't say enough good things about Julie and her level of service.  I haven't bought a parachute from another manufacturer for nearly 2 years and can't see myself going elsewhere. 
Thanks again to Julie.
Can someone post a link to this vendor?? a google search of HD chutes brought up 100 pages of "stuff"
